Today's offering showcases this classic Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust encased in gold and stainless steel. Featuring clean lines and a sharp look, this watch embodies Rolex's timeless class. To us, when it comes to elegance and refinement, the Rolex "pie-pan" dial models from the late 50's through the '60's and '70's were front-runners of the period.
As precise as it is classic, the watch is powered by a mechanism that powered many early models of the Submariner, Explorer, and GMT models. A superior mechanism, it offers a level of engineering and craftsmanship that is exceptional.
Here is a little more about it:
- Pleasing original condition
- Original and untouched champagne "pie-pan" concave dial in mint condition
- Fluted gold bezel
- Caliber 1570 (1575) movement
Our Master Watchmaker has fully serviced the watch which consists of fully disassembling the movement, carefully inspecting each part, replacing any overly worn components, reassembling and lubricating the movement, replacing all of the waterproofing seals with new Rolex gaskets, and extensive timing testing and regulation (a $545 value).
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
